RIFLEMAN'S JOURNAL - AUGUST 2018
The World Sucks
It's not paranoia if they really are out to get us.
Oh look, yet another child-molester for gun control.
Crafted with the NRA's support.
MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD
"REAL SOCIALISM HAS NEVER BEEN TRIED"
Anyone who's paying attention should know this by now, but it bears repeating by Michael G.: "Google's motto was once 'Don't be evil'. But it has been 'Anything for a buck while virtue signalling to the far left' for a long time."
Then, "Surprise! Trayvon Martin documentary is almost all lies. Who could have seen that coming? By the way, self defense law expert Andrew Branca, who covered the Zimmerman trial, will be releasing a critique of all six episodes of the documentary on DVD."
Cruise Line Condemned After Workers Kill Polar Bear in Self-Defense. And that's all I need to know about the "animal rights" movement. But I knew it already.
Likewise the environmental movement will not be happy until everyone but them is starving to death in the dark.
"There has always been anti-Semitism on the far left."
But they call us "Nazis".
Again and again and again with the Judenfrei. GET WOKE GO BROKE.
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "NJ governor skips the country. So NJ’s progressive governor has decided to take a vacation (with bodyguards at taxpayer expense) up to his Italian dacha, I mean villa, while his state falls apart even faster. Yet another multi-gazillionaire who is fast and loose with other people’s money. He can’t accomplish anything useful, but he did get a whole boatload of new gun control laws passed."
Followed by, "All they’ve got is deception. Note that this article never says how much Coke is raising prices. Also, Samuel Adams (which is overpriced, pretentious swill in my opinion), is raising their retail prices by 2% in the name of 'TRUMP TARIFFS!!!'
"Let’s consider this for a moment. According to this, a typical aluminum can weighs 14.9 grams, and thus at 453.5 g/lb, you get 30.4 cans/lb. I find that aluminum is $0.93/lb. Thus, a can contains almost exactly $0.03 worth of aluminum. So let’s assume that every single gram of aluminum in those cans are subject to the tariff of 10% (this is a bad assumption, since a substantial amount of aluminum cans are made from recycled aluminum, which is a whole lot cheaper than virgin aluminum and is not subject to the tariff). That means that $0.003 per can increase in materials cost. For a 12 pack of canned beverages, that works out to $0.036 per pack. I don’t think the typical consumer would even notice that.
"According to this, a typical American drinks 45 gallons of soda (that’s about 500 cans worth) a year. This one says that a typical American drinks roughly 28 gallons (let’s call that 300 cans) of beer a year. Let’s pretend that all that is consumed in cans (bad assumption again), and the total increase in cost to the consumer for 800 tariffed aluminum cans in a year is.... $2.40! So much for punishing economic cost to the consumer.
"Samuel Adams beer is $17 a dozen cans at the local Mega Mart round these parts. A 2% retail price increase on that is $0.34, which is just under 10 times larger than the actual cost increase. So 25 dozen cans of Sam Adams (that’s 300 cans) will cost $8.50 more, of which $0.90 is tariff, meaning that Boston Brewing pockets $7.60 in profit, BECAUSE TRUMP!!!!
"Note of course that these are worst case estimates, the actual cost increases would be smaller because of the indefinite but large amount of recycled aluminum in the manufacturing stream."
Michael G. sends a warning: "Be careful Saturday. Sounds like the enemy is feeling froggy in your AO." And if a decent person defends himself against a violent hate-filled mob in this horrible place what do you think will happen? Yeah I'll stay in my hovel that day, halfway across this commie-occupied town, with my Garand and my 1911. Oh, and Millicent.
"Blandford’s population in 2016 was 1,253, is 97.2% white, and their crime rate is so low that city-data.com doesn’t even list it." And nobody wants to talk about that.
In Lighter News
Michael G. sends, the attempted political assassination of Tommy Robinson has been postponed. But let's remember our Bill of Rights, including "nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb", was written by people who had just kicked the damn redcoats off our continent at bayonet-point because the place where Britain used to be has no such protection against government tyranny. The only reason Tommy Robinson is still alive is because his case reached the public.
Prohibition Will Always FAIL and there's always another way. -Joss Whedon, from whose mind came "That's what governments are for - get in a man's way", went and endorsed the biggest big-government proponent in American history, Barack Hussein Obama. Which really sours the enjoyment of his various creations. Harder every day to separate entertainment from entertainer. But with all this "Can't stop the signal, Mal" going on, maybe it's time for a Firefly/Serenity rewatch.
A while back I wrote, Aurora had taken the scenic tour of Sol System. Saturn's magnificent rings, rarely equalled in centuries of exploration. Jupiter and his moons, many now inhabited; low-level Marsten Fields shielded the habitats from the gas giant's deadly radiation. The Balloon Worlds, asteroids melted and inflated with sunlight focused by thousands of mirrors millions of kilometers apart. The ongoing Terraforming of Mars, much as had been done on a lesser scale with New Israel - they were in time to witness another water-comet impact. Working on thinking about it. See comments also.
SO. YEAH. THEY REALLY ARE TRYING TO MURDER US OVER BUMPER STICKERS NOW. BUT THEY CALL US "NUTS".
THEY REALLY ARE OUT TO GET US. AND THEY WONDER WHY WE WON'T LET THEM TAKE OUR GUNS.
GENOCIDE IS NOT HYPERBOLE.
Speaking of the entertainment rot, Sarah Hoyt gets her knives out for feminazi indoctrination, and as if the murder of Star Wars wasn't enough, another quality franchise gets in line to be poisoned. Then Disney joins the get-woke-go-broke club too.
Which segues to Amazon jumps on the censorship wagon. Think about where you spend your money.
Not unrelated, in the never-enough-to-appease-them sense, Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "More eating their own. Senator Jellybrains, I mean Gillibrand, takes fire from the psycho left for calling for Al Franken to resign. Because of her personal ambition, because Franken is sad his political career is done, because Progressivism is more important than groping some sleeping woman, or something."
Jacob also sends "An immigrant contributing to society. Just not American society."
Aaaaaand cultural vibrancy.
"Can't stop the signal, Mal."
Back here MidWestReader sent an unboxing report on one of those affordable SAA clones. Later he sent a report I didn't blog, about light strikes and possible timing issues. He sent it for service and got it back recently and now updates: "The Pietta Peacemaker clone came back from the factory, feeling quite a bit tighter than it was before. I ran 100+ rounds of .357 and .38 Special through it with no further problems, so I suppose it is fixed now. I still wish the front sight were a bit wider and the rear sight notch were a bit wider. But I suppose those weren't design criteria in 1873. Trigger is still a bit heavy, and I find I have to curl up my pinky on the bottom of the grip frame if I am to use the one-handed duellist's pointing stance that was in vogue at the time." So, customer service win?
"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them,
or in adhering to their Enemies,
giving them Aid and Comfort."
The entertainment rot....
...murders another franchise.
OH. LOOK. YET. MORE. FAKE. HATE. CRIMES.
It's not "racist" if it's true.
To which dots connect cultural vibrancy.
Not unrelated, "...[A]ny objective, disinterested observer would notice that it's progressives who regularly run out of control in angry, violent spasms of incivility and ugliness."
You know, there is still a healthy, vigorous and rewarding Gun Culture in America. And the NRA and NSSF are not all backstabbing Quisling appeasers.
I would rather see TSA screeners dangling from streetlights along every Airport Way in the country, birds pecking at their lifeless eyes, but this is a very small step in the right direction.
Preach it sister Kaitlin.
Trump keeps happening
In my fictional future history I postulate growing replacements for damaged or lost limbs or organs. Michael G. sends, getting there. (Larry Niven pondered the implications half a century ago.)
Government "health" "care"!
What could possibly go wrong!
"Sing along! While it’s still voluntary."
"There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him."
Michael G. sends, "Stroke of the pen, law of the land, if you're a progressive. Federal judge says Trump administration has to reinstate DACA, that rescinding Obama's executive action with an executive action is 'capricious'."
Show, chat and show every Sunday 1100 Pacific Time.
Michael G. sends even more government "health" "care": "UK madness and the National Health Service. A 'Human Rights' group in the UK is demanding NHS provide fertility treatments for the transitioning. In other words, a woman who is trying to become a man must still be able to bear children and a man who is trying to become a woman must still be able to father a child. Impressive in a way, finding something so crazy the NHS didn't come up with it on its own." Now I've also pondered such things but I didn't have other people's taxes paying for it at the point of a government gun.
Followed by, "Maduro pulling an Erdrogan? Lot of suspicion he faked the attack on himself in order to go after people he thinks are threats." But nothing like that has ever happened before... RIGHT?
So there was some kind of panic a while back about bees going extinct and an environmental cascade failure and we'reallgonnadiiieee and Michael G. sends FAKE. But some people really believe.
Likewise, "Global" "Warming" MY ASS. But everyone else has to live in caves, wearing grass skirts and dying of the common cold at age forty.
Michael then sends, "UK setting stage to control internet speech. Totalitarians gotta totalize. Of course the opposite days progs will claim opposing this is 'fascist'."
Which segues to, "Read the Nazi platform at the Democratic National Convention, and most likely, it would provoke thunderous applause."
Which segues to:
On this 73rd anniversary
of the first of only two times in history
that nuclear weapons were actually used in war,
I would remind you that a conventional invasion
would have resulted in half a million or more
Allied casualties, and that the
Japanese government's own estimates were
twenty million Japanese civilian deaths.
They had schoolgirls training
with bamboo spears and
mines on handheld poles
to oppose our landings.
The entire nation was
prepared to commit suicide
rather than surrender.
The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki,
legitimate strategic targets,
military bases and industrial centers,
prevented a war of extinction.
The Japanese nation, culture and race
would not exist today
if the atomic bombs had not been used.
And remember one more thing:
They started it.
And then I got out of bed and
went back to work.
Where the subliterate lowbrows talk about hamburgers
and even trying to bring up this sort of thing
gets blank looks at best.
Or the one who said he likes a "Nine" better than a "Glock" because it's "sleek".
BECAUSE THERE IS A CONCERTED AND DELIBERATE EFFORT TO MISINFORM EVERYONE ABOUT EVERYTHING.
Which effort includes the college "professors".
To which dot connect, Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "Oh, look, more obfuscation, confusion, and distortion, with a side of psychopaths-with-badges sauce.
"It’s not 1259 murders they are claiming, it’s 1259 DEATHS, of which 532 are suicides, 69 are still pending investigation, and 19 died in the incident.
"Suicides are not murders, and should not be counted, as suicide rates have be shown repeatedly to be completely independent of the available tools.
"That leaves 639 homicides for which there have been 332 homicide convictions over 10 years. Unless each of those 332 convicts killed 2 people (unlikely), then something in the neighborhood of 300 of those killers weren’t convicted, meaning that the deaths caused were ruled justified or there was insufficient evidence to convict. So, 332 concealed carry permit holders killed someone and was found to have acted criminally, over the course of 10 years. That’s about 0.002% of all concealed carry permit holders, over 10 years. In a given year, that means that 0.00004% of CCW permits are arrested for homicide." (See also.)
"Some quick searching and I find that cops kill about 1000 people a year and most are never even investigated seriously, much less convicted. How many cops have been convicted of homicide since 2005? Eighty. That’s something like 11,000 killings by cops in 11 years, and there are something like 15 times more CCW holders than cops and yet CCW holders killed 639 people in that same time. So cops are 17 times more likely to kill people than CCW holders.
"332 convictions for CCWs out of 639 deaths in 11 years for a slightly less than 50% conviction rate. Cops kill 11000 and 80 convictions. I think we need to investigate cops better. I’d rather be in a room full of CCW holders than a room full of cops." As. Would. I.
Which segues to, Rolling Stone, the publication of fake rape accusations, is sensationalizing the notion that the National Rifle Association, with five or maybe six million members and an executive vice president who gets paid more in a year than I earn some decades, is running out of money. Michael G. sends something more reality-based, but that's not Lighter News because it really is how the National Socialists treated the Jews.
Followed by, "'Stand Your Ground' has no legal bearing on stopping the Titusville attacker. Though we can expect the media to try to make it sound relevant in order to make the good guy with a gun seem not so good." So the media will take the side of a murderous nut against the citizen who stopped him? Considering past behavior that's a reasonable prediction.
AND AS IF ON CUE.
With, "Progressives oppose racism and support minorities. As long as the minorities think and say the right things."
Aaaaand it's still not Republican NRA members.
But it is MASSIVE. VOTE. FRAUD.
And actionable libel also.
A decade or so ago I made this bumper sticker. Jacob now sends evidence I was right, again: "Oh, my. Turns out that farm raised fish, you know, products of modern animal husbandry and science, are much less likely to carry parasites and other nasties than wild caught, and are probably better for the environment as well. Whoever would have thought that science could improve things?"
Okay, not Lighter News, because Immigrants Contributing to Society, but still schadenfreude, because Muslim tries to blow up NY gas station, sets himself on fire.
AR maintenance. See comments also.
Uppity in Florida.
Adding CodeIsFreeSpeech to my front and links pages. BFYTW.
Think about the kind of violent sociopaths who don't want you able to defend yourself.
They are often also proponents of socialism.
The Lairds of Fairfax....
Michael G. sends, "Teacher's union leaders vow to become even more biased. If you can't home school, perhaps a good move would be to make sure all your kid's teachers are ones who used the Janus decision to leave the union." But the "law" doesn't let parents choose their teachers....
Michael then observes, "Captain Obvious reports from Germany. And yet there are none so blind than those who will not see." Aaaaaand Angela Merkel gets reelected. F*** Germany this appears to be what they want. Unfortunately the infection they invite splatters all around them....
To which dot connect, in the place where Britain used to be, it's not paranoia if there really are people high up in the system who are out to get him.
Which segues to, "Veena Dubal, a law professor at the University of California, said she found it 'disturbing' that the police department would post the mugshots and risk the possibility of putting the demonstrators in danger."
Nor is it paranoia if Big Brother really is watching everything.
Michael also sends, "Remember the Hacker attack on the FCC during the Obama admin?" (I don't actually....) "Turns out it was concerned citizens posting real concerns about Net Neutrality, not hackers using bots to post fake messages. And when the FCC Chief Information Officer said it was hackers, he hadn't even bothered to look for evidence of them."
Ignorant brainwashed bigots stuffed full of other people's hate really believe this is how things work.
A while back I wrote a thing I'm mildly disappointed to have not received death threats over. It's not "racist" if it's true.
CANADA'S GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO MURDER CANADA'S PEOPLE.
YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK
DON'T GO TO COLLEGE
Republican NRA member drives to Democrat's home and shoots himWRONG. EVERY. TIME.
It's still not Republican NRA members and nobody wants to talk about that.
Michael G. sends, "Guess what AP left out in NM child abuse case? That the location was a madrassa and the perpetrator was a Muslim."
Among other Immigrants Contributing to Society.
Just a few days ago I was observing how the flame under the melting pot has been extinguished.
Antisemitism? Antihoploism. (ref)
And Godwin's Law has been repealed.
And burn the government schools.
"The power brokers don’t even recognize the size of the gulf between us."
This is not Lighter News: "The Republicans, and even worse, the Libertarians, just plain stink at taking advantage of a situation." Heck I could make a Republican Party campaign ad: "This is your country." Images of 'Murica. "This is your country with Republicans." Images of jobs, industry, crops, technology, prosperity. "This is your country with Democrats." Images of poop and needles on sidewalks, third-world-s***hole conditions in, oh, say, Detroit, and VAGINA-HAT- AND BONDAGE-FETISH-WEARING FREAKS SETTING THINGS ON FIRE AND ATTEMPTING TO MURDER NORMAL PEOPLE.
Go home Ninth Circuit you're drunkNO WAIT
"Stand Your Ground" laws are "raaaaacist"
I don't use Twitter but if I did I would launch #TrumpKeepsHappening.
And the kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself.
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "Authorized Journalists Only. In the wreckage of the former Canada, a judge rules that 'the digital age has changed the relationship citizens have with media.' She states that anyone can improvise himself a purveyor of information while being free from ‘traditional regulatory mechanisms’, leaving the quality of information unchecked and to the discretion of those who convey it.
"Furthermore, 'The Tribunal finds these mechanisms still remain in the niche of "professional" journalism. Judge Julien then cites a decision of the Quebec Press Council as an obvious example of such mechanisms in action...' Just one problem, Quebecor, owner of the two largest newspapers and the main TV network in Quebec, is not a member of the QPC, and nobody is going after them, since they of course toe the party line."
The other day Michael G. and I predicted "mainstream" media would take the side of a murderous nut against the citizen who stopped him. AND THEN SWEDEN HAPPENS.
But that's not something we need to worry about RIGHT.
Michael also sends an encore: "Progressives support minorities - as long as the minorities say and do what the progressives want them to do. If they do something the progressives don't want them to do, like gaia forbid marry a Republican politician, the heretic will feel their wrath." See also.
Hey remember how the National Socialists passed "laws" demonizing and discriminating against certain kinds of people? That could never happen here....
There are still a few places that don't hate Our Kind. But they're surrounded by those that do....
MidWestReader sends range report: "I went to the range I frequent, to see if there was anything new, novel, exciting, or interesting on the rental racks.
"And found this Colt Cobra snubby. The sighting system is purely horrible, even with a fiberoptic front--the rear is just a groove in the top of the frame, and isn't milled out at the rear to present a recessed non-reflecting vertical surface to the user's eye like it is on fixed-sight Ruger or Smith revolvers. But the DA trigger is outstanding for a production gun. The company web page says it's supposed to be under seven pounds, and it feels like it. The group at the X-ring has 36 rounds at seven yards, all done fast in DA. About two thirds are X-ring hits and only one got outside the 10 ring. I used the last 14 in the box for head shots. The single action trigger is pretty spooky and twice went off a bit earlier than I intended, but all rounds stayed on the head. I got better results with the DA, that might have kept me from jerking the trigger. Recoil is minimal, at least with the Brazilian practice ammo that was available for it."
"I am no big fan of the .38 Special cartridge. I regard it as a low-pressure, low-power, low-velocity, obsolete blackpowder legacy cartridge useful mainly as a practice round for .357 revolvers. Even +P loads are usually little if at all more powerful than .380, and the latter cartridge, while it is also an obsolete low-pressure legacy cartridge, at least fits in thinner, lighter, more concealable handguns than .38 Special does, usually with superior capacity and faster reloads. In practical terms the .38, even .38 +P, and .380 are cartridges of marginal power, using .36 caliber bullets that may or may not penetrate adequately, at velocities that may or may not allow bullets designed to expand to function as intended, especially if they must pass through a denim jacket. There are commercially available loads in these calibers with bullets that will, in testing, usually both expand and penetrate adequately, but in both instances the lists are pretty short. The sub-300-foot-pounds-of-energy 'mousegun' calibers are known to fail occasionally even when used for suicide.
"But I believe I've spoken earlier about whether improved bullet design could partially compensate for the lack of power of cartridges in this class. Conventional cup-and-core expanding bullets seem to be very marginal performers, maybe because deforming the bullet robs it of energy, and the increased frontal area reduces its penetration further. Maybe something similar to Charles Kelsey's old 'Devel' copper solids might destroy more tissue without sacrificing much penetration, or maybe something along the lines of the 'mechanical broadhead' arrowheads that some bowhunters use now could be adapted--cutting tissue is a more efficient use of limited energies than crushing it, after all." Well, that would be tremendously expensive to make for a single use, and then the media would go all Black Talon again....
"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."
The hysterical children really are out to get us with every lie in the book.
Immigrants Contributing to Society....
...And one of the last products of the melting pot: "I am profoundly troubled by the parallels I see every day between my life under communism and the progressive agenda of the Left."
Already touched upon this, but Michael G. sends "Democracy dies in darkness. And that is why we must conceal the identities of anyone violently attacking the results of a democratic election."
Then, "Gulag Barbie [Jacob N. says Bolshevik, which is more alliterative, and there are other names, but one leads to the other doesn't it] brings a whole new level to psychological projection. Says Conservatives are afraid to engage her ideas, then when one does says it is the same as catcalling and refuses to debate."
And then there's this future-of-the-Democratic-Party.
School safety. Really. Which I have also pondered.
In my fictional future history I postulate the extinction of the Catholic church. Same with the Anglicans.
Hippie veeegan snowflakes get melted. What did they think would happen. Well we know what they thought, they blogged it. I'm sure their fellow ivory-tower psychopaths will, somehow, blame it on Donald J. Trump and the National Rifle Association....
Can we please close the f***ing borders already and you know, there are some natural-born "Americans" who need to be rounded up too.
Which segues to, the other day Michael G. and I postulated that the political left and their lapdog media would take the side of murderous nuts against the decent citizens who stop them, then a shrieking sociopath actually said out loud that people don't have a right to defend themselves, and now comes the gibbering psychotic mass-suicidal blood libel o' the day.

To which dot connect, NBC Ignores Own Reporter and Crew Assaulted By Antifa in Charlottesville. Narrative uber Alles!
Two years ago I wrote "...[G]overnment supplies rotting in warehouses, government funds evaporating under corruption and graft, the needy never getting a fraction of it, except when news cameras were present" AND I WAS RIGHT, AGAIN.

Think about the kind of people.
STOP CALLING HITLER "RIGHT-WING" many of his policy positions were far closer to Bernie Sanders than to Donald Trump. -And we know what Bernie voters are like....
But they call us "racist". Didn't I just say how the flame under the melting pot has been extinguished?
Enemy action in Iowa.
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "A good summary: A former Leftist lists many of the stupid, insane, and evil things the Left does, with linked examples."
Followed by, "More eating their own and the death of Hollywood. Openly Lesbian actress cast as Lesbian comic book character, then bullied off of Twitter because she’s not the right kind of lesbian or something."
Bears repeating: "Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving."
It also bears repeating that there really is a concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything.
Michael G. sends, "Immigrants contributing to Australian society. Good thing the Australians allowed their government to disarm them. Otherwise someone could get hurt."
Self-defense is a natural human right, even for people we may not like. This could be a very important precedent, potentially even knocking holes in the lifetime prohibition created by GCA68.
Michael G. sends more trouble for SPLC.
Another first coming for SpaceX. A couple years ago no one had ever reused an orbit-capable first stage. (No I'm not counting the Shuttle's SRBs, I know they got "refurbished".) Soon SpaceX will fly one for the third time. Not throwing away tens of millions of dollars more than once. Elon is not Our Kind, as far as individual liberty and the role of government is concerned, but by God he is kicking open the door to the universe.
MASSIVE WELFARE FRAUD
And all those other contributions to society. I am suddenly reminded that the Virginia Tech shooter was a Korean national who hated Christians.
"Don't Be Evil"
OUT TO GET US
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "Just when you think they can’t get any dumber: 'When it comes to bivalves, the line between plant and animal is unclear.' Seriously? Line between plants and scallops is unclear? 'Seagan'. I can’t even. The stupid, it burns."
Which segues to a repetition that the envirofascists won't be happy until everyone but them is living in caves, wearing grass skirts, and dying of the common cold at age forty.
Michael G. sends, “I killed that b**** and you’re next. No one insults my honor as a Muslim and gets away with it.” "Texas sentences Muslim murderer to death. They call it 'Honor Killing' but 'Honorless Killing' would be more accurate. Islam achieved opposites day far before progressives did."
Michael Vanderboegh's ghost.
I am in favor of open carry. Under current conditions I think it might get some decent, peaceable, innocent people murdered by trigger-happy subliterate sociopathic bigots in government costumes, but that is why open carry should be renormalized.

Scienty-fictiony anti-aging treatments. Getting there?
Sunday morning I was in a room with thousands of firearms and hundreds of My Kind of People who were polite, thoughtful, considerate, civilized, and with whom I could have intelligent conversations. And then I got out of bed and went back to riding in vans with morons for little more than the state-mandated minimum wage which inevitably raises consumer prices and the cost of living. But at least I got pictures.
Another online shopping resource goes Judenfrei.

Michael G. sends, "Last week's ratings are in! People would rather watch bizarre conspiracy theories about aliens building the pyramids than CNN."
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Cheering mobs. NY governor King Andrew says America was never great, mob cheers. Perhaps I could suggest that Andy move to Venezuela or North Korea, he may find them more to his liking." Now, see? Republicans don't even need to write their own campaign ads. Just play Democrats' own public statements.
Followed by - and I played, to completion, the original Doom and Doom II if I recall correctly - "It’s a freakin’ video game. Not likely to be lighter news because I expect Bethesda to cave and take the dialog out any minute now."
Which segues to Immigrants Contributing to Society. Vibrantly.
Not unrelated, Michael G. sends, "SanFran 'poop patrol' to clean s*** off streets. But I thought they said pressure washers would remind people of the fire hoses used against civil rights marchers." By Democrat sheriffs....
In Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged, the government issued Directive 10-289, nationalizing businesses, freezing prices and wages, and effectively reintroducing serfdom. But that was just a story... RIGHT?

I'm still ticked at Trump over bump stocks and "do the due process second" but you know, maybe he really was trolling.
YES there will be a new novel in Tom Kratman's Carrera saga and about damn time!
Speaking of writing, Aurora, part 85, is close - more proofreading and polishing. Probably this weekend.
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "More double standards. If a white or Republican politician said what this one said, every talking head across the country would be screaming for blood. But instead, a quick insincere apology and all is forgiven."
Followed by "Hypocrisy. Bolshevik Barbie bans the press from campaign events. Who has a war on the press again?"
To which New York dot Michael G. connects, if "guns cause crime", "Trash cans cause garbage. That is apparently what the NYC sanitation department believes, as they reduce the number of trash cans in order to reduce the amount of garbage."
The flame under the melting pot has been extinguished. The flames are in the pot now.

It's not paranoia if they really are out to silence us.
But comparing that to what the National Socialists did is just paranoid hyperbole... RIGHT?

"TRUMP IS FASCIST", the black-masked, truncheon-swinging mobs screech. What "fascist" in the history of fascism has ever deliberately and methodically reduced the power and reach of government?
Aurora, part 85, is online. If you find this fictional future history entertaining, please consider a charitable donation through the PayPal button at the top or bottom of most pages on this site. Thank you.
Michael G. sends MASSIVE RACIST WELFARE FRAUD. Your Tax Dollars At Work - for people who won't. Remember this the next time you see some "poor", "disadvantaged", "victim of oppression" in line ahead of you at the supermarket, with three carts full of the stuff you can never justify the expense of. Because you have to set aside enough to pay your taxes to refill their EBT cards.
But those on the political left have always been liars and crooks.
Not unrelated, in a demographic sense, I was never a fan of football. People who are, yet claim to be patriotic Americans, need to examine their priorities.
Speaking of demographics, Immigrants Contributing to Society.
REAL SOCIALISM has NEVER BEEN TRIED
Sooooo Larry Correia and the whole Sad Puppies thing keeps getting proven right.
Everyone's going nuts about the 6.5mm Creedmoor but it kinda already exists. This is what Col. Cooper used to call the "marketeers", in his columns in the back of Guns & Ammo. Whyyyy?
And then, having not won the lottery,
I got out of bed and
went back to work.
Seriously two or three guys running around doing all the work
and everyone else driving in circles playing music and Snapchatting.
And they wonder why I refuse to work weekends
for the same or even less wages the slackers get.
Are all jobs like this?
Or is it just me?
Followed by, "Well, looks like #MeToo means let me have some too: Asia Argento accused of paying off actor who says she sexually assaulted him aged 17. And the predictable response from the Left includes this treasure from Roseanna Arquette (whoever that is): I know many many rape and trauma survivors who act out sexually The wounds they carry run deep. I pray for them. the timing of this story is suspect. Asia was still raped by Harvey Weinstein.' This seems to boil down to 'it’s OK to rape someone if you were raped first.' Notable for their absence are the calls for lynchings, destruction, and career ruination."
Seriously Hollywood WTF. This among many other reasons is why I don't watch movies in theaters anymore, and wait for the DVD to come through at the public library.
Michael G. sends, "Social Justice Warriors ruining Engineering. You don't need a bridge to fall on you to figure that one out."
In my fictional future history I postulate Switzerland being subjected to indiscriminate orbital bombardment by the United Nations as it transitions to the Terran Empire. Here's a motive.
The flame under the melting pot has been extinguished.
Which segues to WAKANDA which segues to:
In my fictional future history I postulate personal air transport. Working on it.
Maybe they won't be called "fabbers". Maybe they'll be called "Codys". CAN'T STOP THE SIGNAL.
Early this morning, half past midnight maybe,
I could not avoid hearing my neighbors interacting.
What was I supposed to do, call the cops?
I don't think so, Tim.
Hours later I was ready to go to work
when, by my automatic porch light, I notice activity outside.
Not wishing to interact with my neighbors,
I peered through the blinds, to witness two Portland Police officers
handcuffing one of them and standing outside my front door interrogating him.
Now it's thug vs. costumed thug right on my doorstep,
any of which could become murderously violent at the slightest provocation.
So I have to wait in the dark,
hoping I don't have to earn my way into Valhalla quite yet,
until they go away,
and miss a half-hour or more of pay for taking the second bus.
This is not the first time I've had such a problem.
And how many days, or hours, will pass
before the revolving door spits out the non-costumed thug
and he's back here to "finish the b**** off"
and a stray round traverses the hovel into my spleen?
I hate this horrible place.
Monsters do exist.
They really do hate us and fantasize about murdering us.
Some people want to be slaves....
...and some have sympathy for the devil.
RINO backstabbing in Wyoming-of-all-places.
Battleground Nevada. What are you doing for the Cause?
Immigrants, Contributing to Society....
Michael G. sends, "How DARE someone mock a Parkland survivor! Oh, this one was asking the school pointed questions, not attacking gun owners and conservatives. Carry on, then."
Followed by, "On the CA Round Up cancer verdict - I already knew California was like the woman in the 'If Google was a guy' video who asked if vaccines cause autism and on being told '10,000 documents say no, one document says yes', picked up the single 'yes' document and says, 'I knew it!' I did not know that the lead author of the one study saying Round Up is a carcinogen was on the payroll of the trial lawyers. It sounds like the Alar scare all over again."
With, "Bolshevik Barbie revisits former employer. Who is going out of business due to steep rise in minimum wage, a policy she has long advocated. She fails to grasp the connection."
And, Don't Go to "College, where due process goes to die. If they say the evidence exists, it exists, even if it doesn't. And you pointing out that it doesn't proves you are guilty."
Okay so I don't and won't trust any cop of any kind, but the Other Side calls us "Nazis" while demanding Immigration and Customs Enforcement be abolished and then ICE deports an actual for-real Nazi. Trump is making all the right heads explode. Ours too sometimes but still worth it.
Michael G. sends, Antifa Beats Fellow Protester Bloody for Carrying American Flag. And whose fault is that? Hearts and minds, baby!
Speaking of fighting real Nazis though, here is an interview with The Actual Gunner from that famous Pershing vs. Panther duel in the shadow of Koln cathedral.
Heeeyyy, PayPal is asking for my Social Security number. Not cool.
The entertainment rot keeps spreading....
Pretty sure this was not a Republican NRA member. But it could be one of my new neighbors, I dunno how many people they have coming and going or sleeping in their cars at the curb after blowing their EBT cards at the pot shop across the cul-de-sac.... Well, we're supposed to be boycotting Walmart anyway.
Speaking of boycotts, it's not a paranoid conspiracy theory.
University of Utah instructor requires LGBTQ students to remain in 3x3' space in back of class, without seats or deskOH. WAIT. "In a statement provided to the NRA, a University of Utah spokesman said the instructor was forced to redact the syllabus and apologize to students. Officials also removed the instructor from any teaching this semester." But she expected to get away with it.
"The record speaks for itself: socialism is a hate crime, a doctrine of tyranny, mass murder, and human suffering on a vast scale."
To which dot connect, Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "The latest socialist success story. And 7% of Venezuela’s population has fled, BBC confused as to the cause. Or willfully ignorant. More socialist successes around the world that the Democratic Party wants to emulate right here. I’m getting that walls-closing-in feeing again." You and me both, brother.
Then, "Meanwhile, where the UK used to be, 'violent gangs' is British for Muslim immigrants, typically."
IMMIGRANTS CONTRIBUTING TO SOCIETY
Arizona, doing something for the Cause.
Hundreds of Millions of U.S. Guns are Unlicensed and Untraceable. GOOD.
Because Prohibition Will Always FAIL and there's always another way.
Out to get us.
The kind of people who don't want us able to defend ourselves.
Michael G. sends, "Iowa State University to study micro aggressions in engineering. Funded by the National Science Foundation. The best case scenario is that it is just a make work project to suck down some tax money, and not an omen of future bridge collapses in Iowa."
Then, "Canada looks at US PC political stupidity and says, 'Hold my beer and watch this!'"
And, "Male Vets contribute to 'Hegemonic Masculinity'. According to a professor at Northeastern." Sooo she was dating a veteran and he stopped returning her calls?
Immigrants Contributing to Society
And sociopaths in the media contributing to the immigrants.
"Remember the US ARMY’s OICW competition back in the 90s?" The sight alone looks like it weighs more than Precious, my 16" mid-length Magpul-furnished carbine, in her current flip-sights-only configuration. Though I do note choosing bolt action for the 20mm grenade launcher must greatly simplify the engineering and manufacture. On the other hand I note the guy demonstrating it doesn't seem to know his way around it, fumbling for the bolt release on the rifle portion. I woulda rehearsed that a few times before turning on the camera.
Couple years ago I wrote "Our medical technology can repair almost any injury, cure almost any disease...." Michael G. sends, working on it.
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated"OH. WAIT.
NEVER BEEN TRIED which segues to:
But the place where Britain used to be prioritizes what?
A concerted and deliberate effort to silence all opposition.
And lies and slander of course.
"...[T]he lies he told to get elected...."
MidWestReader observes, "Even the Chinese hate SJWs."
Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends "Dressing down. So Alameda now allows students to wear/not wear just about anything so long as they cover 'genitals, buttocks, and areolae/nipples with opaque material.' Also forbidden are clothing with 'imagery depicting profanity, pornography, drugs, alcohol, violence, hate speech, or similar items of such offensive natures.' Kid sent home for wearing American flag shirt in 3, 2, 1...."
No really we're supposed to be boycotting Walmart.
Witch hunt which segues to:
Michael G. sends "Hue and Cry in London: Crowd of citizens subjects beat acid attacker." Long past time for such backlash, but guess who'll be facing criminal charges....
Then, "Lit. Prof has students sign contract to behave like adults. Sounds pretty reasonable. Wonder how long before he gets driven from academe?"
And, "Man bites dog: A college student writes, and college newspaper publishes, an op-ed saying Donald Trump is not to blame for Puerto Rico, and that those blaming him are trying to divert attention away from their own responsibility."
Burn the government schools and don't go to college but seriously, no, do not use government money and government bureaucracy to arm teachers. I demand separation of school and state.
Which segues to, would you trust your life to an airplane, or a bridge, or a piece of medical equipment, designed or built or maintained by a quota-hire?
Michael G. sends, "Guess she isn't a self-hating Jew after all, since she made up her Jewish identity in order to be more effective bashing Israel. Just like the 'life long shooters' who suddenly conclude that gun rights advocates have gone too far and we must have gun control."
The Constitution says "No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed", and "...[N]o Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted." Those declaratory and restrictive Clauses apply to works of government, and not to the non-government entities in this news item, but Michael G. sends "Attainder by blood: Eli Lilly pulls sponsorship of racer Conor Daly because of something Conor's father said before Conor was born."
Another public shooting, in Jacksonville, Florida, which may or may not have something to do with a video game tournament. I'll tell you who and what are not responsible: Republican NRA members with MAGA hats. It's going to be days before anything remotely trustworthy is learned, and then, like always, it won't fit the statist, collectivist, anti-self-defense-pervert narrative, and it will be swept under the "mainstream" media rug, except for deliberately vague and oblique references to inflate statistics.
Willfully-ignorant bigots really believe this is how that works. ...Well - someday - it will.
Speaking of emerging technologies, it's not paranoia if they really are spying on you - or lying to you about spying on you.
To which dot connect, got yer "culture of corruption" right here.
Which Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, segues to "More massive vote fraud. NYC Democrats run people for DNC and they don’t know they are running." Isn't that awful close to involuntary servitude? Well, Democrats are the party of slavery....
To which dot Michael G. connects, "Nebraska State Sen. under fire for standing up for sanity, opposes establishing a position for University Diversity Officer, especially at a six figure salary." And some folks wonder why tuition is so high.
In the news, Arizona's oathbreaking RINO senator John McCain has passed away. I won't miss him.
ACLU sides with gun rights in New York. o_O
Japan has never been a free country and the Japanese have never been a free people but they do have some admirable traits. Let's get some of those social-justice-major diversity-hires to test their bridges and airplanes and such this way.
ONE OF THEIRS.
NOT ONE OF OURS.
LIKE I PREDICTED
AND LIKE USUAL.
AND WHOSE FAULT IS THAT?
Michael G. sends, "Twitter officially admits to double standard. Or is that 'no standards'? Ace of Spades lays it out better than I can."
AND ALL THEIR KIND.
And the Lairds of Fairfax are doing what for us?
Immigrants Contributing to Society....
My knee jerks in response to the notion of government funding for arming teachers. Codrea raises another angle, which I have also raised myself. Hmmm. The problem is in the implementation. Who decides? Who writes the rules? Who enforces them? And what's their agenda, resulting from their indoctrination and prejudice? Government poisons everything it touches, and always has.
Even more RINO backstabbing in North Carolina. Send a f***ing email for f***'s sake. You're already on all those lists.
Yes, Fudd, that means granpa's thutty-thutty too.
Michael G. sends "The difference in an Energy Department that supports production of energy, not opposes. Trump's Energy Department is helping move small nuclear reactors to market." Getting a little excited again. Although with Bill Gates involved one must automatically become suspicious....
DO SOMETHING FOR THE CAUSE
"They won’t appreciate you for 'compromising.' They’ll take it and continue on their quest to have it all...."
Think about the kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself.
Which segues to Quislings helping to lock up your safety. What could possibly go wrong.
Burn the government schools separation of school and state.
And the colleges too.
Wow, even NPR can't swallow the lies about school shootings.
But generally, yes, they really are all that f***ing ignorant.
Which segues to, it's still not Our Side trying to start the race war.
And there remains a concerted and deliberate effort to silence all dissent.
Which segues to, Codrea has an alternative viewpoint on publicizing the identity of murderers.
Openly racist entertainment rot. F*** you I'll write my own.
Tucson Tom, benevolent donor of the Queen, sends the real John McCain.
Michael G. sends, "Have Germans finally had enough? Riots calling for closed borders, ouster of Merkel after German murdered by 'refugees'."
Followed by, "Maryland Democrat governor O'Malley attacks FL Gov Scott over FL gun laws because of Jacksonville. Totally ignoring that the gun was legally purchased in Maryland, not Florida." Well, "legally" is in question, Form 4473-wise. But - gasp! - could it be that mentally-ill mass murderers have no qualms about lying on a government form? HORRORS!
TRUMP CUTS PALESTINIAN FUNDING. Can we redirect those tax dollars from murderous terrorists to the border wall?
A few lingering vertebrae in the place where Australia used to be. Child porn "found" on "his" computer in 3, 2, 1....
Only police can be trusted with guns. [pointing] "HAH-HAH!"
Yup - like I predicted - the Jacksonville murderer was one of theirs, not one of ours, and it's rapidly disappearing from the anti-self-defense-pervert media.
Which segues to the concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything.
To which dot connect the Blood Libel o' the Day.
Remember how Smith & Wesson Must Die?
Think about where you spend your money.
Maybe California will slide itself into the ocean. But how many of our hard-earned, government-stolen tax dollars will be shoveled on the fire?
Speaking of Your Tax Dollars At Work....
Court action in Michigan, over discrimination against foster parents who exercise natural human rights, and in New Jersey, Where the Bill of Rights Goes to Die!tm
Speaking of discrimination, oh look Google/YouTube keeps going in that brownshirt direction.
Explain - in small words - how in the unholy flaming poop does this make me "racist"?
Immigrants Contributing to Society... which segues to:
Codrea reviews a new book on the Fallschirmjägergewehr - first in a planned series.
Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends Cato Institute's Freedom in the 50 States. For planning purposes. Damn sure don't want to stay here.
Here is a place which appears to sell full kits, everything but the serial numbered frame or receiver, to build even more different firearms. With the Ghost Gunner likely to continue improving and gaining capabilities, and hopefully inspiring competition, that's very interesting. The day when a home user can shove raw ingots in one end and get finished products out the other is getting closer.
"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them...."
A concerted and deliberate effort....
News so fake they gotta... I don't know, brain cells died just looking at it.
Entertainment rot get woke go broke.
Burn all the colleges now
Which segues to the most racist thing I've seen today.
No, really, National Socialist gun control.
Which segues to the anti-self-defense perverts getting their brownshirts on.
Then, incoherent gibberish in the Florida governor's race.
Years ago I pondered Immigrants Contributing to Society which segues to:
LOOK WHAT I HAVE CREATED
Uppity in Occupied Colorado this Saturday.

Hmm, maybe I should build a hog-hunting upper to slap on Precious' lower. Multi-$igh, I should be getting a car again so I can go shooting again and maybe leave this horrible place....
Republican NRA member with MAGA hat arrested after road rage incident, bringing gun to schoolWRONG, ALWAYS
It's still not Republican NRA members with MAGA hats slaughtering each other in Chicago and NOBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT THAT.
News so fake
A concerted and deliberate effort
To misinform everyone about everything
Entertainment rot I was kind of looking forward to that film but yeah, should've expected as much. Or as little.
(But then this happens....)
Michael G. sends, "So let me get this straight, we are supposed to bow to the political and moral insights of a grown man who plays a children's game for money, but the men playing that game are only allowed to have one opinion?"
But that's not something we need to worry about RIGHT?
Overt enemy action in Oklahoma.
Doing something for the Cause, even in this horrible place. What are you doing? You're already on all those lists.
Never did care about football.
Streisand Effect [pointing] "HAH-HAH!" Alas, the nearest one is way down on the Commiefornia border and I haven't had a car for nearly two years....
